From Purchase to Plate: Linking USDA Nutrition Data with Retail Scanner Data to Assess the Healthfulness of America’s Food-at-Home Purchases

MAY 23

NCCOR’s Connect & Explore webinar will share findings and insights from Linking USDA Nutrition Databases to IRI Household-Based and Store-Based Scanner Data, a recent USDA report.

On May 23, 2019, NCCOR is hosting a Connect & Explore webinar to discuss the findings in a recent publication from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service called “Linking USDA Nutrition Databases to IRI Household-Based and Store-Based Scanner Data.” USDA researchers created a purchase-to-plate “crosswalk”—linking USDA data and household retail scanner data—to measure the overall healthfulness of American’s food-at-home (FAH) purchases. Results show that improvements in the healthfulness of Americans’ FAH purchases are needed to comply with federal dietary guidance.

The webinar will feature Andrea Carlson, PhD, MS, an economist in the Food Markets Branch of the Food Economics Division, and will highlight findings from the report.

Join us on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. ET, for the one-hour webinar.
